About the artist:
Emily Neufeld was born and raised in Alberta, but now lives and works on the unceded territory of the Squamish, T’sleil Waututh and Musqueum people in North Vancouver. Her prairie roots run deep, though the West Coast seems better suited to her ideologies.
Layers of memory and traces of psychic history accumulate in particular domestic spaces, and Emily’s work investigates that lived history through the dialogue between the materials she uses and the spaces she creates. The materials are building materials: concrete, drywall, wood, insulation and glass, as well as dirt.
The work begs the questions: Can a space ever be empty? What fills the spaces between the walls? Where does the content of a house end? At the doorway? In the yard? In the prairie itself? Do some spaces look in while others look out?
This event is co-hosted by the UFV School of Creative Arts and The Reach Gallery Museum.
